Longtime forum reader and collector, this is my first post.

I was wondering, considering subsequent foreign releases which affect the price of OOP titles, what are the most sought-after OOP Twilight Time Blu-rays?

People are still paying a lot for Fright Night even though there’s a fine Eureka release. La Bamba and 1984 recently fetched the prices as high as $70 on eBay.

I can’t say for sure if Fright Night is just an anomaly but it does seem like availability of region B release hasn’t impacted sale prices too hard.

It seems like common sense to invest in a region free player.

Of course in the case of Fright Night, the Eureka release is region free. So there is no excuse for anyone to pay for the OOP TT release.

Are any screenshots/comparisons for Model Shop available anywhere yet? I'd really like to have it on Blu but given TT's spotty history I've been waiting to pull the trigger. Figured they'd be out by now.

I know we can't always assume a Sony TT title will come from Indicator, but even a lesser Demy like this seems inevitable

And MichaelB has suggested that foreign films/directors generally aren't Indicator's MO, but this would obviously be an exception like The Passenger.

I don't think that MichaelB said that foreign directors were necessarily a no-no - it's just foreign language. And I think he indicated that the Passenger was the only even remotely borderline case on that front that Indicator has on its slate as of a few months ago.

Most of the Indicator catalogue is foreign to me!

But yes, there are currently no plans to distribute anything not primarily in English.

(For what it’s worth, I don’t regard The Passenger as an exception - it may be a French/Italian/whatever co-production, but it’s an English language film starring Jack Nicholson.)

Unless I'm misremembering, isn't Model Shop in English?

I...didn't word my last post very well. I simply meant that, yes, Indicator isn't going to release an Antonioni film or a Demy film unless it's one of the few films they made in English, in which case it might be considered an "exception" for one of those directors.

And yes, Model Shop is in English.

I will confess that I would rather see Omar Sharif in the role of Genghis Khan than John Wayne.

Yes, it is that bad of a film. Anyone happy about this is a moron.

Is it worse than The Conqueror though? You make this sound like something I could gift to someone I hated.

Let me put it this way: Halfway through the movie, James Mason shows up sporting a Fu Manchu

No clips online, but here he is in the trailer. It's somehow worse than I remembered-- though Robert (né Robery) Morley makes Mason look like Marlon Brando in this movie. The trailer quite wisely didn't use any clips of Morley talking!

I remember this film now. I have actually seen bits and pieces of this. It was on TCM and my Dad pointed out what trash it was.

I suppose at least Genghis Khan did not result in everyone getting cancer from being filmed near to a nuclear testing site. So it is not literally toxic!

Ok, I saw yesterday Genghis Khan, and although I love the genre, yes it IS bad! (and this comes from a person that loves italian peplum films that generally are considered bad)
I was bored to death and in the last 5 minutes i fast forwarded.
I wouldn't recommend a blind buy to anyone.
